Anzac Biscuits | Healthy
These delicious Anzac biscuits are a perfect addition to your kids lunchboxes. Swapping out a couple of ingredients from a standard Anzac biscuit gives these a healthier spin, without loosing the delicious flavour. Use spelt flour instead of white flour, coconut sugar instead of white sugar, and the goodness of the rolled oats makes these a great snack! The recipe is suitable to double and freeze so perfect to batch cook and set yourself up for a couple of weeks!
